For the past five years. this has been my 'special place' when I need to feel grounded or get away from life stresses. Alone, in a group, all ages, Hemlock Bluffs offers delicious air, ions galore, walks of varying character (decked, stone and wood stairs, flat and winding paths). It provides a stroll or a chance to practice for hiking.... More

My husband and I love walking the trails at Hemlock Bluff with our dog. The paths are soft under foot with mulch padding and there are bridges spanning streams. There are beautifully crafted stairs to observation platforms at overlooks. Definitely worth the visit to short and long trails!

This is a good nature walk through the woods, we only wish they had some live animals throughout to see!

Well maintained facilities and trails where you can take a nice easy stroll with young children or something longer and hillier with older kids and adults. Very easy to get to, easy parking. Highly recommended!

Nice trails to take at your leisure and watch the wildlife. We started going when my son was young. Now we take our dog.

A beautiful well-maintained area in the heart of Cary with several walkable trails. Features a rare stand of hemlocks in the South. I always feel safe there.

You feel like you are miles from anything, but, it's actually very close to everything. They have a cute gift shop and very convenient parking. I love to take my dogs there for a walk!

This is a nice local place to take your family. I've taken Girl Scout troops. The Education Center is small, but nice and well, educational. We go regularly.
